HC Deb 11 May 1971 vol 817 c90W
Mr. Ted Fletcher

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the annual public expenditure on housing in the Northern Region in 1968–69 and 1969–70; and what is his estimate of public expenditure on housing and road projects listed separately in 1971–72.

Mr. Amery

Approximately£54 million in 1968–69 and£53 million in 1969–70.

The expenditure for 1971–72 on housing and roads will depend on the progress made on individual schemes and contracts of which no estimate can be made at present.
